Actually, I agree with this.

My sister and brother in law have an MGB. I don't feel particularly safe sitting in the car when it isn't moving, let alone when my BiL is driving

I dunno, while I understand, and sometimes feel, the attraction of a convertable. I think I like having all that structure around me. A moonroof provides all the open air motoring experience I need.

3. I could haul more stuff - grocery and Home Depot trips are a logistical nightmare.

4. Female safety - I don't have an alternate car to take anywhere and often

5. I feel very uncomfy driving a convertible.

6. Power - this car has no zip.


Item 2 and Item 5 by themselves would be enough for me to move on, especially if you now feel like you've "been there and done that" with respect to the convertible experience.
